Reggie Bullock will have to settle for something less with the New York Knicks next season following reports that he has signed a $4.7 million two-year deal for the 2019-20 NBA season. He was originally set to get a $21 million contract for two years before health questions entered the picture.

The 25th overall pick of the 2013 NBA Draft hit a snag when an undisclosed health-related issue was brought out in the open. League sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that player agent David Bauffman and the Knicks re-evaluated Bullock’s fitness to play a full season. The two-year $4.7 million deal includes a team option in the second year – likely the phase where the Knicks will once again evaluate the health condition of Bullock for the 2019-20 season.

Bullock is not the only latest signee of the Knicks. New York practically used its remaining cap space to sign Marcus Morris to a one-year $15 million deal. In a way, this factored in to the final numbers of Bullock’s contract since there was only $4,767,000 left. Regardless, the Knicks got two players who could further boost the Knicks campaign this coming season.

“With Reggie and Marcus we are adding two more versatile, hard-nosed and accomplished players to an already improved roster,” said Scott Perry, general manager, New York Knicks via “We value both players’ perimeter shooting ability and their strong presence on the court and in the locker room. We’re excited to have them in New York and are confident they will excel playing for this team under Coach Fizdale.”

Bullock had his best years with the Pistons, his second team after entering the NBA in 2013 with the Los Angeles Clippers. After signing with Detroit in 2015, the 28-year-old’s game started to show in 2017. Looking at his career stats, it was in 2018 where Bullock had his best year, averaging 12.1 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists. After getting traded to the Los Angeles Lakers last season, the University of North Carolina standout never really got the chance to shine, averaging only 9.3 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. He hopes to start fresh under the watch of Knicks head coach David Fizdale.

For Morris, signing with the Knicks comes in the aftermath of a botched $20 million two-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs. It has been a colorful offseason for the 6-foot-9 forward who also reportedly turned down a $41 million offer from the Los Angeles Clippers, the New York Daily News reported.
